I am losing hair by the brushful. I am 4 months pregnant and never had this happen before. I am eating well and taking my viatamins so I'm confused as to whats going on. I have heard of losing AFTER the pregnancy is over, not during....and I always had thick full hair during my other 2 pregnancies. At this rate I will be bald by the time the baby is born! Any ideas as to why this is happening? Any answers would be greatly appriciated....thanks

Have you talked with your doctor? Losing hair in bunches can be a symptom of several illnesses, you need to discuss this with your MD! Meanwhile, I'm sorry. :frown3:

Talk to your doctor, its probably hormones due to PG. Have you been tested for hypothyroidism? -- low thyroid can cause hair loss, so can anemia or low b vits. Are you taking pre-natal vitamins, especially folic acid? I'm sure it'll grow back, but let your dr know.

When you are pregnant, you will lose hair. It will grow back, it might be curlier, wavier, straighter . . . Everyone I know lost hair when they were pregnant.
